    Tried the search function but had no luck. I live in Ohio on a county road that has a no thru trucks sign posted. Just started my first driving gig and going to be bringing my truck home soon I hope. Tried looking things up on Google to and didn’t have a lot of luck on the situation. From what I’ve gathered since I live on the road with the sign and don’t have to park on the street they have to grant access to my private property for me to park. On top of I would be considered local traffic since I live on the road

    just curious if anyone else has the same issue or if I’m on the right track of thinking with what I’ve found
    Boondock and Chinatown Thank this.

    Talk to the local police. Smaller towns usually can turn a blind eye to that since you live there.

    Contact your township or local government and ask them. There’s a chance the signs are up because the road is a shortcut and they don’t want a bunch of truck traffic. They may not care if you take the truck to your house.

    it was a shortcut for a local quarry between two state routes at one point is why I’m guessing the signs were originally posted. No small bridges or low clearances.
    Have heard that they have to have allowed access for local people but haven’t found much digging through the Ohio revised code on it. I might give the county a call tomorrow and a local attorney’s office for drivers for some more info. Just trying to avoid a lawyer charging me money to answer one quick question lol
    Boondock Thanks this.

    go in person to your town hall and police. tell them where you live and that you need to get to your house. you should be approved, and make sure the police chief informs his staff.

    there will always be one richard-weed that was out that day.

    and above all else, OBEY speed limits and no loud noises as well...

    Also, be mindful of your neighbors. They might not be too keen on seeing a big truck parked in the neighborhood. I know I don't.

    Purpose is to keep trucks from using that street as a bypass and keep truck traffic to a minimum. If they wanted no trucks there would be a sign saying no trucks. You are good to go.

    “Go to the attorneys office, county, police, town hall, etc etc” y’all are dumb and don’t know what a no thru truck sign means and also left your balls somewhere years ago.

    You are not a truck traveling thru, you are going home.

    A man has a right to work, no matter the profession, be it a 1ton plumber truck or a rig.

    Keep the rpm low as possible, mellow thru and maybe give a nod and smile at the neighbors.

    But if it is a small community, I agree with the local authority contact, that will look good on you, that you give a hoot to do so. Small Town folks are often, well, odd.
    (edit in) -- if this we're my scenario, I would not be asking them if it's ok, but just inform them 'hey the semi rolling by is just me'.
